Winter Streaming Announcements

Postby reborn » 21 Dec 2012, 21:34

Crunchyroll will be starting things off for premium members with Boku-no-imoutowa.
Boku-no-imoutowa“Osaka-okan”, tells the story of Kyosuke, a boy who has been reunited with his sister after 10 years of living apart. However, his little sister Namika is nothing like he remembers.

Boku-no-imoutowa“Osaka-okan” is another collaboration between director and designer Sota Sugahara and writer Kotaro Ishidate, who previously worked together on the first season of gdgd Fairies. Ryoko Shirashi, best known for her roles as Hayate in the Hayate the Combat Butler series and Kaede Nagase in Negima!, will star as the main character. His younger sister will be voiced by Kana Asumi, whose credits include Yukikaze Panettone from Dog Days, Kiyal in Gurren Lagann, and Ran from the Shugo Chara series.

The series is based off of a series of popular books called “Osaka Rules” by Chukei Shuppan, which offers a humorous look at how to deal with people from Osaka, who are stereotypically portrayed as being louder and more forward than their Tokyo counterparts.

They'll also be continuing with more Saki - Episode of Side A

Winter season anime announcements are underway, and here’s another one for you… Saki Episode of Side A shall continue on Crunchyroll!

Episode 13 will be airing for Premium members on December 24, 2012, at 7:30am PST. Free members will be able to view it one week later, at the same time.

For those of you who aren’t already familiar with Saki Episode of Side A, here’s a plot synopsis refresher!

Shizuno Takakamo and Ako Atarashi, members of the Achiga Girl's Academy Kid's Mahjong Club, invite the new transfer student from Tokyo, Nodoka Haramura, to come play with them. Kuro Matsumi, a student one year above them, and Harue Akado, a university student who is their coach, are there as well, and together they spend their days having fun and playing Mahjong. But when it's time to go to middle school, Harue leaves for a pro team, and Ako ends up going to a different school. And then Nodoka transfers, and the group is torn apart.

Premium members can catch Saki worldwide except for Japan. It will be available to free members in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.




Also, get the Steel Angel Kurumi re-watch in (or first watch if you haven't seen it yet) as it comes off CR on Dec 31st as its licence expires.

The episodes are short and sweet 10 mins w'out credits, so it shouldn't be too much of a chore.

Folktales from Japan
Gintama

Their goal is simple: Become an overnight sensation and use their nationwide media exposure to promote their school and bring in a wave of new students to the ailing area. A simple but solid plan, they figure. Naturally, they’re nervous and wonder if this plan can really succeed, but for better or worse their new journey has begun... ”

I don't think that is being streamed in the UK, just everywhere else. I believe AOD is still showing it in this country.

I think JustPa means he wasn't sure whether it would keep running through the end of the season (I believe it's currently planned two be two cour, though I'm hoping we'll get at least twice as much as that when all is said and done).

Though it does raise up an issue with what's going to happen with AoD this winter season.

The initial announcement for the autumn season was that it would be free, and that following that 'apology' to the fans, it would be back to business going forward. If they continue with Magi, as I expect them to, it will be behind the paywall from Cour 2 onwards.

Apparently a lot of Crunchyroll's new announcements so far this season are for five minute shorts...

They have a couple of catalogue titles due for announcement today. Hopefully they won't be locked away from the UK.

ANN Reports that Crunchyroll is to stream Ishida and Asakura Comedy Anime.

2-minute shorts of high school antics to premiere in Japan on January 6

The Comic Natalie website reports that the media service Crunchyroll will stream the Ishida and Asakura (Ishida to Asakura) gag comedy anime overseas as it airs in Japan. The two-minute surreal comedy shorts will premiere on Tokyo MX TV station on Sunday, January 6 at 10:27 p.m.

Masao's original manga centers on the friendship of high school boys Asakura (Weiß Survive's Nobuhisa Nakamoto) who "wants to become a teacher at a girls' school in the future" and Ishida (Kamisama Kiss's Shūta Morishima) who "wants to become a florist with Asakura in the future."


EDIT: and those catalogue titles "Hula Girls" and "Documentary of AKB48: to be continued", live action, were indeed locked away from the UK.

Got five new shows to announce for AoD actually as well it seems - final contract pending but while a few i's and t's are dotted I persuaded folk to make this season of Anime on Demand free as well.

Broadcast will be as close to Japan as possible but for at least one of our partners it's only their second season of simulcasts so they're still adapting. We're helping to ease them in before things really ramp up though...

*whistles innocently and wanders off again*

See further down, as we're warming up for something big pretty soon, I persuaded everyone to let this season remain free so Magi finishes as it started and the five new shows go that way too.

Looking forward to finally having the delicious NDA lifted so I can talk more openly at last too...

However, her true desire is only to fool the eyes of others and pretend to be a couple. With a certain secret of his in Masuzu's hands, Eita is forced to play along… But a fierce battle over Eita begins as his ex-girlfriend, Himeka, and his fiancé, Ai, join the fray!!”
